However before they come to us on Ormond Quay they will have appeared at this year's Jazzahead Club NIght in Bremen, Germany such is their reach. Following their appearance in Bagots Hutton they will also be performing at The Bray Jazz Festival. Ã„TSCH is mixing exiting Jazz improvisation with modern post-rock sound aesthetics. Strong melodic statements are the foundation of their music. Ã„TSCH takes those melodies and develops them through improvisation. The Band was founded by Matthias Winkler in 2016 as a graduation ensemble for the New Park Centre of Music BA. Since then Ã„TSCH have become an active part of the Dublin Jazz scene with appearances at Arthurs, the International, Anseo and for over a year at their own Sunday residency at the Front Door.
